|Throughout the 1999 season, there was a running joke about "Jimmy and Danny" because there was so much .... bad blood. Jimmy was the coach and GM. But Danny was H Wayne's friend. He was untouchable.|
The Dolphins managed to make the playoffs. They had a divisional game against intra-state rival, and relatively newcomer Jacksonville.
Jimmy had almost taken a job there, prior to coming to Miami. So it was personal. And there was a question about whether Marino's career was coming to a close. Things looked promising....
And the game went perfectly....if you are a Jags fan. For Dolphins fans, not so much. Just take a look at the video below if you don't remember.
62 to 7. It got so crazy that the sprinklers came on during the game. And the next day, in a form of protest, a group of actual dolphins (the mammals) beached themselves.
It was pathetic all the way around.
And within days Jimmy quit and Danny retired.
The Fins square off again on Sunday....what will happen? Hopefully not 62-7....that's for sure...
